President Bush heading to Miami to raise $$$

With polls suggesting several close congressional races in Florida -- including challenges to Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart -- President Bush heads to Florida Friday to raise money for the GOP.

The White House says Bush -- who has low popularity ratings but remains a formidable fundraiser -- will attend a fundraiser at a private residence in Coral Gables benefitting the Congressional Trust 2008, a joint fund-raising operation that benefits both the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Republican National Committee.

Following the fundraiser, Bush is to meet with Cuban-American community leaders, the White House says.

Bush hosted a fundraiser in Naples for the Diaz-Balarts several months back, but neither made the event, saying they had to cast votes in DC.
